Beneficial Insects Protection - Research and Extension Experiences for Undergraduates (REEU)

The UNL Beneficial Insects Protection Summer Research Program enables qualifying undergraduate students to receive training in research within their field under the direction of Dr. Douglas Golick. Funding is provided through a United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) Research and Extension Experiences for Undergraduates (REEU) grant. Students are paired with faculty mentors and also receive mentorship from graduate student researchers in the lab for a 10-week period.

MERC is providing evaluation support for this program. The evaluation includes pretest, posttest, and follow-up surveys conducted by the REU program. Additionally, MERC staff conducts mid-point and exit focus groups with the students, and faculty and graduate student mentor exit interviews each year.
